According to Peter Singer there is a question about what we spend our money on and at the same time what we don’t spend our money on. He talks about how we could make a difference in a child’s life just by donating the money we would spend on a pair of shoes to an organization that helps poor children. This is not something I had ever considered before but it has definitely made me think more about what I spend my money on.

Peter Singer does not think that you can “think whatever you want about right and wrong” and I agree with him. There are some issues where it is good to have your own opinion but most moral issues (or right and wrong issues) already have definite answers.


I watched the “Drowning Child” and “Applied Ethics.”
